London: excudit Rogerus Nortonus, regius in Latinis, Græcis & Hebraicis typographus; væneuntque apud Sam. Mearne, regium bibliopolam in , 1670. [382]pp. plus preliminary blank leaf. Contemporary speckled calf, raised bands, spine gilt extra. Upper joint cracked at top and bottom; corners worn, shallow loss at crown and toe of spine, a few minor marginal smudges, front free endsheet nearly loose, contemporary ownership inscriptions on endsheets, with ink name in margin of title- page, but internally a very good copy. Second edition of this version of Book of Common Prayer, in Latin, for the Anglican Church, edited by John Durel, who signs the dedication "J.D. Editor." First printed in 1669, this is one of two variants of the 1670 printing noted by ESTC, in this case with the imprint in five lines, ending with 'Little- Britaine." The translation was initially undertaken by John Earle, John Pearson and John Dolben, but they withdrew before the work was complete, and Durel, later Dean of Windsor, completed it. ESTC locates four copies of this variant in North America, and nine of the four line variant. ESTC R17750. WING B3637B. GRIFFITHS 87.10.
